TWO hours would be a nice contrast to twelve.

Yeah, fiftyone bucks for one charger is morn I usually pay, and, again,
thanks! I'm glad you cited your source, much less dinero -
I used to make ALL my own chargers, then things got more complex, no
published specs, so you're not really sure what you're building for or need=
. . . constant current until V >=3D X ? ? ?
I didn't say the old Fuji's were unreliable, just relatively low voltage at=
full charge, so low readings on the HHb percent meter.
Again, if HHb would just say WHAT voltages, timing, and or currents it
needs not to "call it quits" . . .it is like automobile or TV repair
nowadays - you used to be able to figure it out and DO it. Now the specs
are hidden so success is preserved for the licensed few . . .
Can anyone say why Li ion are so complicated to charge? I mean it is a
battery for gosh sake! I didn't think so. . .
RE: The Travelling Bernie: I bought his Wild Notes book with CD, from
Amazon. Really nice, I am enjoying it.
Soundscapes on order.
